New DelhiL Tamil Nadu government on Tuesday knocked the doors of the Supreme Court against the Madras High Court’s order of permitting RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) to conduct a route March.

The Tamil Nadu Govt has sought a direction from the Supreme Court for staying the HC’s order.

“Allowing such a march could cause law & order issue and problem. Action that has been initiated by the State is reasonable restriction to maintain public order,” the Tamil Nadu government’s petition filed before the Supreme Court said.

The two-judge bench of Justice R Mahadevan and Justice Mohammed Shaffiq, of the Madras High Court, had in its order allowed the RSS plea, and permitted it to conduct a route March.

While allowing the RSS to conduct a route march, the Madras High Court had noted that the State must uphold the citizens’ right to freedom of speech and expression.

The Madras High Court had directed the RSS to file fresh applications for carrying out the route march on three different dates and directed the Tamil Nadu police to permit the RSS to take out route marches on any of such dates in various districts across the State on public roads.

The Madras High Court in its order had permitted the RSS members to take out a route march in their uniform led by a musical band throughout Tamil Nadu.
